So, with Goodwood FOS, HSCC Brands Superprix, Magny Cours 'GP de France Historique' and Monza Historic, does this weekend mark the worst clash of the year?

I could happily have gone to 3 of the above (forget the first mentioned ), but will be heading for the most atmospheric of the venues- the 'Autodromo Nazionale Monza'. With the recent high temperatures experienced here in the UK, we should be well ready to take anything Italy in July can throw at us!

Looking forward to an authentic pizza, maybe a limoncello or two, and walking the old banking once again. Some things just have to be done, regardless of whether you've done it before......

Timetable here- https://peterauto.peter.fr/wp-conten...-timetable.pdf

Good luck anyone looking for the entry lists- the new PA website is extremely difficult to navigate! If I find them I'll post a link. Edit, here under 'download'- https://peterauto.peter.fr/en/monza-historic-2/

We haven't been for a couple of years, so really looking forward to it!

Looking at the entry list for 60's, not many of the "minnows" that we usually have a tussle with are there which is a shame!

Yes, 'only' 48 entries for 60s Endurance. Some organisers would boast of that many!

Doesn't look like the new F2 series is taking off....only 8 entries for Monza, and I think there were only 10 or 12 at Dijon....maybe back to the drawing board on that one!

Well, it was controversial from the start. I know one UK based car went sick at Dijon and won't be there for that reason. The owner also bent his CER car so has decided to give Monza a miss altogether!

Historic F2 could, and should, be one of the most spectacular series in historic racing. There were about 25 cars a couple of years ago at the HSCC Superprix and they made an impressive and wonderful-sounding spectacle.

Somebody needs to speak to all the drivers and ask them what they want, how often they would like to race (and where) and how much they would be prepared to spend.

"If you build it, they will come" doesn't always hold true...

No, possibly more than one 'limoncello'.....

You'll be sorely missed, bud.

Apparently Jacques Laffite is driving in CER1....I assume you will be taking your autograph book, Mike?

Also given your description of RA at Dijon, can't wait to hear how you describe JL!!!

Oh dear- that possibly signals more looking the other way while some folks have their pic taken with him.... And what was wrong with my description?

You can also add Paul Belmondo in CER2. With all those French drivers around, take care if your tents are not weeproof!!! And if you ask for an autograph, do supply the pencil and take it back then…
Anyway you'll have some rest, guess Jean Alesi will be at Magny in the meanwhile. He's still a legend in Italy.

For those thinking that they'd rather be at Monza than Brands, Nevers or wherever- it's rained ever since I got near Milan, the main autostrada from Turin was blocked this afternoon by a big accident, we aren't allowed into the paddock until the morning, nothing is ready in there anyway, and the loos inside Parabolica where we've been shoved are locked....

Luckily I was given the heads up on the accident by another race truck who was just behind the collision and drove through the debris, so was able to re-route north and loop round, but the loos being locked is almost one thing too many!

Think an early night.....
